The area formula for the parallelogram is related to the area formula for a rectangle because you can make the parallelogram into a rectangle to find the area.


The formula for area of a parallelogram is the base times the height (BXH=Area).


The formula for area of a parallelogram is bh. Base times height.



A formula is needed to find the area of a parallelogram. It is a very simple formula which notates Area = base x height.


Area of a triangle = 0.5*base*perpendicular height Area of a parallelogram = base*perpendicular height


The formula to find the surface area of a parallelogram is Base*Height.



Assuming that you are asking about the formula for the AREA of a parallelogram (there is no formula for a parallelogram), A = bh where A is the "area", b is the length of any side (called a "base"), and h is the "height" measured perpendicular from that base to the opposite side.


The area of a parallelogram in word form is base times height.



Area = length*perpendicular height


Hopefully you've been given the parallelogram's area. If so you can use the following formula: Area of parallelogram = base length x altitude therefore altitude = area of parallelogram (divided by) base length


If you know its area then divide its height into the area which will give the length of the base of the parallelogram


A rectangle and a parallelogram have the same formula for area:The area of a parallelogram is given:area = length × widthwhere:length is the length of one of the sides of the parallelogram; andwidth is the perpendicular distance between the side chosen for the length and its parallel side.In the formula for the area of a rectangle, the width (perpendicular distance between the sides given for the length) is also the length of the other two sides.


The area of a parallelogram: base times perpendicular height


The area of a parallelogram is length times perpendicular height



It is the length of the base multiplied by the height.


They both use perpendicular height and are in square units. Area of a trapezoid = 0.5*(sum of parallel sides)*perpendicular height Area of a parallelogram = base*perpendicular height


The formula for the area of a parallelogram: Base times Height (BH)


Area = xy * sin A Where x is one length of the parallelogram, y is the other length and A is the angle between the two lines.


Because the area of a parallelogram is length times perpendicular height and the area of a rectangle is also length times perpendicular height


In order to find the area of parallelogram is found by knowing the area formula. The formula is A=b(base) multiplied by H(height).


Formula for parallelogram prism is volume = cross sectional area times length. It can also be calculated by multiplying length, height and characteristic length.
